PERSONS WHO MAY NOT MARRY

 Marriages between parents and children, ancestors and descendents of every degree, and between brothers and sisters of the half as well as the whole blood, and between uncles and nieces, or aunts and nephews, are incestuous, and void from the beginning, whether the relationship is legitimate or illegitimate.  All marriages between first cousins are prohibited.

 All marriages contracted without this state, which would be valid by the laws of the state or country in which the same were contracted, are valid in this state, unless they violate the public policy of this state.  Marriages that violate the public policy of this state include, but are not limited to, same-sex marriages and marriages entered into under the laws of another state or country with the intent to evade the prohibitions of the marriage laws of this state.
